Footprints in the sand

It has been quite a week for Ailsa and me with foot injuries. And what better place to illustrate feet than being on a beach in Australia, where bare feet results in lots of footprints in the sand.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.

    1. Well I can’t speak for Aisla but my ankle is still sore, though I’m not walking much on it at the moment. Thanks for the good wishes 🙂

      1. Think we all would after today’s rain! But still, a bank holiday is a day off – even if, as you say, the weather’s been pretty dire here this summer – anyway, hope it was a good one for you! e.

        1. As someone who is ‘retired’ Bank holidays don’t mean much to me any more, but I do know how much I looked forward to them when I was working! Sadly rained all day here too 😦

    1. Twisted ankle walking in a park last Saturday 😦
      Badly swollen and painful, so I have been resting it, elevating it and using ice! But walking on it seems to aggravate the ankle again so I need to be careful. It has been a bad year for this foot 😦

      1. Jude, are you sure you didn’t break something? Obviously it could be a soft tissue injury, but there are so many bones in feet/ankles. You MUST give it a decent rest! Can you borrow/rent crutches?

    1. Almost put up a photo of you walking barefoot on your beach 🙂
      Yes, rabbit care over, thank goodness, though I have to admit becoming quite fond of them by the end, they did make me laugh at times such as when they were playing hide and seek under the lawn mower cover!
